How to Turn On or Off Vsync in Overwatch 2

Are you looking to turn on or off Vsync in Overwatch 2?

In some cases, your game might experience graphic issues, and enabling Vsync can fix them.

Overwatch 2 was released on October 4, 2022.

Since its release, the game has had multiple known issues.

Some of the known issues are server disconnection, cosmetics, items, currency not showing up, and others.

In this guide, you’ll learn what is the Vsync feature in Overwatch 2 and how to turn it on or off.

What is Vsync in Overwatch 2?

Vsync in Overwatch 2 will sync your monitor with your GPU and show every frame your GPU renders.

If your monitor has a 60Hz display, it can display up to 60 frames per second.

If you play a 100 FPS game on a 60Hz monitor, screen tearing can happen.

This means that a new scene in the game might be shown before an old one has been rendered.

With Vsync enabled, screen tearing will be mitigated because it’ll sync your screen with your GPU.
